How to Write a Memoir/Autobiograhy

Ever wanted to write a memoir but don’t know where to start? Then this is the course for you. We will look at compiling information, layout and structure and ways to make your memoir accessible and readable.  There will be workshops to inspire you. We will also look at cost effective ways of self publishing your memoir.

Courses are run on an informal lecture/discussion group basis.

Is the Course for you?

This course is suitable for beginners or experienced writers and will include workshops. It is designed to give you practical tips, advice and feedback in a friendly and informal atmosphere. 

What can you achieve?

By the end of the day you should know how to go about compiling information, how to organise your material and have an overview of different types of structure and layout for memoir/autobiography. 

You should know what works and what doesn’t, and will, hopefully, have made a start on the actual writing,

Handouts are provided. But please bring a pen, a notepad and lunch. If you would like to bring a laptop that is also fine, but there are limited power points in the room
